  1. here ya go
  2. holes were on both sides for when someone ordered the optional passenger visor. I'll snap a pic of my orignal panels and post it...no pleats, but embossed (B3/4 were different from B1/2). Merle, how did they emboss yours? When they did mine the didn't emboss them, but used a knife to create a line to mimic the emboss. I'd love to see a closer up pic of the emboss,
  3. Well it IS metric glass...
  4. yep pretty much what happened to me...the thicker stuff would just bunch up, the thinner woudl just fall out.
  5. True...FEF is a single rear one ton
  6. Tim and gramps: I actually had a professional do the install. Thicker tape was tried, and considering the condition of my truck there was little to no rust on the parts for them to be thinned metal or distorted. We did all your tricks and the glass would still work it's way out. So bonding agent was used.
  7. I tried glass setting tape 4 times before I had to go to a bonding agent. Nothing would hold the glass in over time and the the glass kept poppoing out.
  8. yah, my truck was bone stock and I've had many cabs and doors go thru so I knwow where things go! I got my stripping from Steele
  9. I'd think the fugly would scare the rust away!
  10. pricey but man is it nice product!
  11. neither of them have the rear fender extension to be true dually trucks. You can always stick an extra tire on as long as you don't overload the bed and have it efender rub on the tire.
  12. it would but at the moment I am between jobs and have a wedding to pay for,
  13. did you get your present Ed?
  14. you getting him Steve?
  15. well kids, I applied and was accepted to the local Concours show. FEF will be on of 20 vehicles in his class. I'll make sure to post pictures after the show this Sunday. I have to leave my house at 4AM to get to my load in time...erf! Funny thing is I bet I'll be one of the few that actually DRIVE to the show (lots of worry about "rig parking" in the literature)! Wish me luck, my first official judging!
  16. Oops forgot about the restored UTE! Sadly it seems I forgot to snap.a picture...
  17. I'll take MOD for the B series trucks and would entertain the "minnesota centric group" if one comes up... I'd nominate Young Ed for the W series if he wants it otherwise I can do that as well untill someone wants it.
  18. sorry no luck last night....I'll dig somemore today
  19. Sadly I did not place. The Pontiac next to me took first in class. Oddly the guy lives less than a mile from my house! Second place went to a blue 54 or so Chebby truck. All the vehilces there were wll done. Judging was odd, 30-45 seconds max at each vehicle, a quick walkaround and an opinion formed and moved on...really odd judging the "style" and "elegance" of a vehicle. meanwhile some pictures of some MoPaR things I saw....
  20. I'll look today. I had friends in from Germany this weekend and was busy with them.
  21. So today after 8 months of employment at the company I was working at, I get let go with two other people, one of them my direct reports. No real reason given except "going a different direction". I probably interviewed my replacement about a month ago. All I can say is the owners of that company need to really look at themselves for what they're doing to a bunch of people that gave their heart and soul to that place. There's a special place in hell for people like that. Especially when I asked as recently as Monday if I was doing okay and I was told I was doing a great job. So now what?
  22. screenshot the screen on someones computer and put it on as the background and move all the icons to a folder (for easy replacement later) and nothing they click on will do anything!
  23. I have one like that in FEF, no number! And no rebuilder tag or hole from a rivet.
  24. I'll look tonight.
